Rev 8:12-13  And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.  (13)  And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

The events of the first part of the Fourth Trumpet match up with those events that Jesus said would occur after the Tribulation.

Mat 24:29-31  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Then the Fourth Trumpet also announces an angel flying through heaven announcing three woes upon the earth: The first woe is said to have occurred after the Fifth Trumpet sounds. Rev. 9:12. The events of the the Fourth Trumpet will not occur before the Tribulation period ends. However, the first woe, which is separate from the Fourth Trumpet will begin to occur when the Fifth Trumpet sounds.

The Fifth Trumpet - Rev. 9:1-12

Rev 9:1-12  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.  (2)  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.  (3)  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.  (4)  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.  (5)  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.  (6)  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.  (7)  And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.  (8)  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.  (9)  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.  (10)  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.  (11)  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.  (12)  One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

This message will be an actual event on earth that will signal the Fifth Trumet is sounding. Earth will suffer a strike from an interstellar body. Probably in a location of some volcano. There will be violent eruptions that wil send fire and smoke into the atomosphere. Satan and his legions will be loosed upon the lost souls of mankind. This will be a darkly spiritual event that will signal that the time is short for men to repent and turn to Jesus and be saved from the wrath that follows. Only the church will be able to recognize what is happening  because this plague is not allowed to touch them. It is a plague that hurts only lost humans because the demonic spirtits of Satan cannot touch those who have been sealed by the Holy Spirit. “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the World!”  All believers are sealed by the Holy Spirit the instant they confess the Lord Jesus Christ and ask Him to save them. The church must continue to preach the salvation that is in our Lord Jesus Christ to these poor unprotected souls that perchance many might be saved.

These demonic spirits will be seen by the men they infect only by the effects they are having upon their bodies. This plague will be perceived to be a virus of some kind, and men, in their desperation to find a cure, must be warned that the only cure is through the power of the Holy Spirit that can seal them against the power of these demons. But the time is short. This woe will last for five months and then the second woe begins.







The Power to Love

1 Pet. 4:8-9  And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall

cover the multitude of sins.  (9)  Use hospitality one to another without grudging.


Rom. 13:8  Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath

 fulfilled the law.

John 15:12  This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.


Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.  (23)  I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Isa. 45:22-23 

1 Cor. 12:31  But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

1 Cor. 13:8  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
